The Seasons of My Mother:A Memoir of Love, Family, and Flowers Marcia Gay Harden
Lucas Brown is a young werewolf who just finished his first semester at Salem State University. He aced all his classes, said goodbye to his psychic best friend, and played a last successful ´´Human versus Zombies´´ game of the year. Now it´s time to go home for the holidays and forget about Salem for a little while. Except, his werewolf boyfriend just admitted to him that he plans to spend his Christmas alone on the empty school campus and has done so for the past three years. Now Lucas is driving home with Dean Gray in the passenger seat, and his parents are more than excited to meet the alpha that he´s brought home. The only problem is, Lucas never told them that he and Dean are dating, and he plans to keep it that way. Too bad it´s going to be next to impossible with his horny werewolf boyfriend constantly stealing kisses.

One of America´s most acclaimed writers and journalists, Gay Talese has been fascinated by sports throughout his life. At age 15 he became a sports reporter for his Ocean City High School newspaper; four years later, as sports editor of the University of Alabama´s Crimson-White, he began to employ devices more common in fiction, such as establishing a ´´scene´´ with minute details-a technique that would later make him famous. Later, as a sports reporter for the New York Times,Talese was drawn to individuals at poignant and vulnerable moments rather than to the spectacle of sports. Boxing held special appeal, and his Esquire pieces on Joe Louis and Floyd Patterson in decline won praise, as would his later essay ´´Ali in Havana,´´ chronicling Muhammad Ali´s visit to Fidel Castro. His profile of Joe DiMaggio, ´´The Silent Season of a Hero,´´ perfectly captured the great player in his remote retirement, and displayed Talese´s journalistic brilliance, for it grew out of his on-the-ground observation of the Yankee Clipper rather than from any interview. More recently, Talese traveled to China to track down and chronicle the female soccer player who missed a penalty kick that would have won Chinathe World Cup. Chronicling Talese´s writing over more than six decades, from high school and college columns to his signature adult journalism - and including several never-before-published pieces (such as one on sports anthropology), a new introduction by the author, and notes on the background of each piece - The Silent Season of a Hero is a unique and indispensable collection for sports fans and those who enjoy the heights of journalism. 1.

Sexy gay stories with a country twang. Something about the country brings out the best - and the sexiest - in a man, and country boys are a special breed. These tobacco-chewin´, cattle-ropin´ icons in temptingly baggy overalls or skin-tight wranglers rank with cops and soldiers as one of the most potent symbols of the naturally masculine male. Sweating and sensual not from the gym but from honest, hard work (and play), they come in all shapes, sizes, and erotic potential. City homos hike the wilds to commune with nature and nature boys. Gay pioneers enjoy rural living and loving. Lonesome queers meet for moonlight trysts in the cornfields. Whether yielding to the rugged charms of that hunky ranger during bear season or skipping the farmer´s daughter and bedding his accommodating son instead, the men of Country Boys: Wild Gay Erotica unabashedly explore the sizzling side of life far from the city lights. 1.

Taylor was on his way to big things. He was the star quarterback in college at Michigan State, and as his last football season was tapering off, the offers were starting to stream in for him to play professionally in the year to come. Everything in his life was starting to fall into place, or at least that was how it appeared. In reality, Taylor felt empty. He should have been happy; his career was rock solid, and he had a beautiful girlfriend that made every man on campus jealous. Taylor had it all, but there was something missing. On his quest to find out what that missing piece was, he found himself going down a dark path that he would never have imagined. What Taylor yearned for was the forbidden fruit that was presented to him. What he didn´t realize was that there would be consequences. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gus Klondike.

In this poetic and inspiring memoir, one of America’s most revered actresses uses the imagery of flowers and the art of Ikebana to depict the unique creative bond that she has had with her mother throughout the years - and how, together, they are facing her mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Marcia Gay Harden knew at a young age that her life would be anything but ordinary. One of five lively children born to two Texas natives - Beverly, a proper Dallas lady, and Thad, a young officer in the US Navy hailing from El Paso - she always had a knack for storytelling, role-playing, and mischief-making. As a military family, the Hardens moved often, and their travels abroad eventually took them to a home off the coast of Japan. It was here that Beverly, amid the many challenges of raising a gaggle of youngsters, found solace in Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement. Using the imagery of flowers and Ikebana as her starting point, Marcia Gay Harden takes us through the different seasons of her mother’s life, all the while weaving in the story of her own journey from precocious young girl to budding artist to Academy Award-winning actress. With a razor-sharp wit as well as the kind of emotional honesty that has made her performances resonate with audiences worldwide, Marcia describes the family’s travels overseas, her flourishing career in New York and Hollywood, and, most poignantly, Beverly’s struggles today to maintain her identity as she tackles her greatest challenge yet: Alzheimer’s disease. This memoir illustrates the uniqueness, beauty, and unforgettable love of motherhood as Marcia does what Beverly can no longer do: She remembers. Like a cross between Mary Karr’s The Liars’ Club and Lisa Genova’s Still Alice, this memoir is a lyrical, loving homage to one mother’s strength as reflected in the tenacity and artistry of her daughter. 1.
